Boss by Jennifer Paige

Reviewed by Timea Barbaras

Boss“I don’t want to be a product of my environment. I want my environment to be a product of me.” Is the opening line of the Martin Scorsese’s “The Departed”, but it is also fitting for this book. “Boss” unfolds in the micro universe of New York’s projects and describes its strong gravitational pull over people.

Jennifer Paige introduces the reader to several characters whom – like planets – are caught up in the gravitational pull of the projects. Only the light of this sun is rather dark and toxic, so people either inhale its toxicity in order to thrive in that environment, or struggle to break free. The main characters of this book fall into the second group, but whether their attempts were successful or not, remains for you to discover.
